What is this event?
REVULN is a series of free private meetings for invited guests where participants attend the presentations of international speakers and connect with all the selected guests.
The idea behind the events and their organization are unique, no conferences hosted by private companies have similar features.
Information about the previous events are available here.

Is this a marketing or promotional event?
No. We do NOT promote, advertise or sell anything, and we do NOT accept sponsors.
The event has been created, planned and financed by us just for speakers and attendees, completely for free and without any business or promotional activity or purpose.
REVULN's goal is sharing knowledge and connecting people.

How joining as speaker?
Please check our Call for Papers for details.
Usually we provide free accommodation for the international speakers with presentations covering the main topic.
No "paper" is requested, this is a Call for Speakers where you will be asked to provide your presentation only (slides).

How can I attend the event?
The event is invitation-only, attendees are selected by us and by our guests.
Anyway feel free to contact us if you wish to participate, we are ever looking for interesting guests who can contribute to the events with their presence and knowledge.

How are the invited guests selected?
The expected attendees directly invited by us are mainly from two categories:

Is there any political motivation?
No, REVULN and its team are completely neutral and free from any political and ideological motivation and bias, no matter what are the countries and goals involved.
This open minded attitude allows guests from very different and sometimes conflicting fields to attend a relaxed event focused on experiences and information.

Are you going to release the slides of the presentations on the website?
Yes, but please note that some presentations may not be available since some speakers may prefer to not share their material with the public.

Are you going to record or stream the sessions?
No, we take no video recordings of the event.
Due to the current emergency we "may" record the sessions, but sharing them would depend by the speaker.

I'm an invited guest and I would like to attend only some presentations.

Time is a valuable thing and we perfectly know how difficult may be to attend the full day.

I'm a journalist, am I expected to provide media coverage of the event?
We don't expect anything from our guests.
The event is for you, not for what you are supposed to return back to us.
